New Crosswalk Expected to Improve Safety for Students in Escondido

Residents and officials celebrated the opening of newly painted crosswalks in Escondido Monday, a move meant to keep students safe when heading to school.

The crosswalks at the intersection of Mission Avenue and Ash Street will help students heading to and from Pioneer Elementary and Mission Middle schools.

City and county officials, including Escondido Mayor Sam Abed and Vice Chairman of the County Board of Supervisors Dave Roberts, cut the ribbon on the project shortly before 3 p.m.

The ceremonial crossing was held by County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency’s Communities of Excellence (CX3) project in partnership with Escondido Education COMPACT and Escondido Union School District’s Safe Routes to School project.
